#5 of 12 Speciality lodging in Francavilla Fontana
Masseria Giulio is listed as a regionally important building dating from the early seventeenth century. It started life as a chapel serving the local farm workers before being used as a convent and then a monastery. During the eighteenth century it was converted into a masseria (walled farmhouse). It remained a working farm producing olives, olive oil, vegetables and fresh milk, cheese and meat from the animals (cows, sheep, goats and pigs) homed in the stable block until the late 1980s when it fell into disrepair. We have completed a full restoration of the property using local artisan builders and craftsmen and have converted the old stables and farm buildings into holiday apartments. The property sleeps up to 18-20 adults in total across five self-contained apartments (1 one bedroom and 4 two bedrooms) which have their own well equipped kitchen, inside dining and living areas and outside patio areas. The apartments have been designed to provide stylish, high quality accommodation with designer furnishings to allow you to relax, unwind and enjoy this fabulous corner of Italy. The farmhouse garden (approx. 600 square metres) is surrounded by a high dry stone wall and has been fully landscaped with an array of beautiful plants including roses, birds of paradise, cannas, bouganvillia and cacti. We have an orchard containing apricot, lemon, orange, nectarine, pomegranate, plum, cherry, kiwi, mulberry, pear, apple, fig and grapefruit trees. We also grow a wide variety of our own organic vegetables. Guests are welcome to use our produce during their stay. Adjoining the masseria and garden we also have a small olive grove featuring around 35 olive trees. These produce two types of olives; one primarily for eating (please note that they need to be prepared and are not suitable for eating fresh from the tree!); the other type is used for making oil. We make approximately 45 litres of organic extra virgin olive oil from our crop harvested in the late autumn.

We arrived at the Masseria after a 13 hour drive and felt like we have arrived in paradise once the gates opened. Very nice and friendly owners, modern and clean apartments, an amazing pool that the children didn’t want to come out of, amazing sunsets and the tastiest tomatoes I have ever eaten.

Vi var en gruppe på 18 voksne som leide hele stedet i en uke. Det er et fantastisk sted for ferie i Puglia. Fine leiligheter og nydelig uteområde med hage og stort basseng.Egen frukt og grønnsak hage tilgjengelig for gjestene. Vertskapet, Ian ,Lucy og de to døtrene , var utrolig hyggelige og hjelpsomme på alle måter. Vi hadde felles frokost og flere middager som ble ordnet av dem.Nydelig mat. Kokkekurs og vinsmaking ordnet de også. Vi fikk gode tips om strender og steder vi burde se. Vi anbefaler absolutt denne Masseriaen både for grupper av voksne og familier med barn.

Luogo unico a Francavilla Fontana, immerso nella tranquillità e a portata di mare, Adriatico e Ionio oppure rilassarvi nella splendida struttura tutta curata con una bella piscina e tanti confort a vostra disposizione, vicino anche ai parchi, Zoo di Fasano, Alberobbello ecc.. Facilmente raggiungibili posti sul mare come Punta Prosciutto, Porto Cesareo, San Pietro in Bevagna, Torre Lapillo,Maruggio ecc... Oppure San Pietro dei Normanni, Ostuni brindisi , Lecce e tante altre località, nelle vicinanze della Masseria Don Giulio anche diverse attività come negozi, alimentari ,abbigliamento ristoranti e gelaterie di ogni genere parliamodi paesi come Francavilla Fontana , Oria, Mesagne, Latitano ecc. Per me é la seconda volta che torno in questa masseria , la consiglio vivamente. Dimenticavo i titolari Iann e lucy sono delle persone squisite.
